My work has been included in some very interesting projects this month! My friend Patty Wongpakdee has authored a beautiful new book, Art Without Waste: 500 Upcycled & Earth-Friendly Designs, which features three of my Metrocard paintings. The spirit of good design and creative reuse that defines Art Without Waste perfectly aligns with Jean-Pierre Roy and Michael Kagan's vision for their ongoing Single Fare exhibitions of art on Metrocards. To see more of the artwork Patty included, check out her book's Facebook page.
Earlier this month, the weekly online magazine The New York Optimist ran a wonderfully comprehensive feature of my paintings, drawings and early work. (Other New York Optimist features include the work of lovely artist pals Julie Elizabeth Brady, Peter Drake, Alia El-Bermani, Nanci France-Vaz, Eddi Flemming and Kristy Gordon.) I am also excited that my piece Besotted was chosen to be featured in The Museum of Realist Art's themed virtual exhibition of self-portraits on the museum's Facebook page, curated by the tireless artist and curator Pamela Sienna.
... And although the inspiring blog Women Painting Women featured my painting Protective Shell back in July, I couldn't resist mentioning this remarkable online resource of and for female artists. I am honored to be a part of the WPW family!
